Lenzing and Candiani to bring softness to hemp in denim

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2022-05-26 17:13:27 – None

Fifty rare oversized women's denim shirts will be offered for purchase at the Coreva Design Store in Milan, Italy, as the first fruits of a collaboration between fiber company Lenzing and denim manufacturer Candiani.

They're based on Coreva, Candiani's biodegradable stretch denim created from Tencel Limited Edition yarns that contain 20% hemp fiber.

For those looking for personalized jeans, the limited-edition fabric will also be offered at Candiani's Custom Microfactory in Milan.

Hemp is recognized as a very sustainable fiber and an alternative to many traditional fibers used in garments, but it is also well-known for its roughness.

For the first time, hemp combined with wood pulp was converted into a soft fiber using Lenzing's closed-loop manufacturing method.

Caroline Ledl, head of textile product management at the Lenzing Group, said that they’re delighted to learn what customers think about items manufactured with this new Tencel Limited Edition hemp fiber. In 2021, they launched the Tencel Limited Edition effort to investigate the use of alternative raw materials in textile manufactures, such as hemp or orange pulp. They wanted to stretch the traditional bounds of fiber manufacturing by harnessing natural resources, and they appreciate collaborating with like-minded firms like Candiani Denim that share their environmental ideals.
